Wings Cultural Society Invites you to 'Gandhi Park' Hindi Play.
'Gandhi Park' explores the issue of eventual displacement of human beings due to socio-economical, socio-political and cultural reasons, the issue of identity and the sense of belonging. It initiates a debate over these issues in the light of several examples from across the world. The play takes a dig at the normative rules that people adhere to in order to get accepted by the society and often forget to reflect upon their consciousness. 'Gandhi Park' revolves around three people in a park and their fight over the only three benches there. Their conversational debate makes one laugh and forces one to think about what is it that counts as a mark of territorial entitlement — caste, city, region, religion? Or is it something more ephemeral?
